Great spot. Convenient to the airport without being stuck in the airport. Francois welcomes everyone and make them feel as if this is their home even if only for a night. The property is beautiful. The rooms well appointed. Plus the WiFi works extremely well I am already back for my next stay and look forward to more visits

My family flew in from the US and was looking for a place close to the airport before we left for a game reserve the next morning. Francois, the owner, allowed us to check in early.

I stayed here the night before we left for a safari - the room was absolutely beautiful, large and spacious with a full bath and a very comfortable bed. The staff was very welcoming and the gardens were lovely for a walk in the morning. The breakfast was generous and tasty. This is excellent value for the cost and I...

Booked a safari and outlook lodge came as standard. It was just a kind of pick up point between the airport and the kruger park, we thought. It's really not. It was honestly like going to visit an old friend. We toured s.a and made a point of staying at the outlook lodge on our way back to the airport....
